've got the funding of the government, the so-called sequestered, which is a set of automatic spending cuts that were delayed by two months as part of the fiscal cliff arrangement, and we have the infamous debt ceiling, which will come into play. so we will be seeing a lot of activity in the next few months, debates about people criticize the government, about the size of the deficit, and it a lot of back and forth over these three issues. without going into all the different ramifications, i want to say one word about the debt ceiling, which is not everybody understands what the debt ceiling is about. the debt ceiling -- raising the debt ceiling, which congress has to do periodically, gives the government the ability to pay its existing bills. it does not create new deficits. it does not create new spending. so not raising the debt ceiling is sort of like a family which is trying to improve its credit ratings and i know how we can save money, we will not pay our credit card bills. not the most effective way to improve your credit rating. it was a very slow solution to the debt ceiling

a system in its entirety. but look at ways to control health care costs to get in control of government programs and medicare that we have to go back and do this every couple years. we have to study what works and put more policies that are working in place. we have to do with other entitlement. social security farm is a contentious issue in this country. it's always a tough battle, but the longer we wait to make changes, the more difficult for the people who depend on these programs. we have to go for the tax reform, which is great when you talk about a bradley because the tax cut is a disaster. when you talk about the ability to broaden the base, lower the rates increase revenues, that's a pretty good system. it's pretty desirable to think how to reform the tax code. but when you start talking about specifics for the home mortgage deduction for state and local taxation, because my difficult. so we don't easiest pieces. you don't have to type a single specific policy. tax in 1% is pretty darn easy, even if your the 1%. this guy takes more to fix the problem. now we have the hardest par

to gather dust on the shelf, of some agency, in government, a set of principles emerged, that there was not universal agreement on, but overall whelming consensus on, and they were the foundation of the recommendations. if you'll permit me about another 10-12 minutes, i want to lay out to you what they are from the perspective of the president and me. the first foundational principle is, there is a second amendment. the president and i support the second amendment. and it comes with the right of law-abiding, responsible citizens to own guns. use it for their protection as well as for recreation. the second foundational principle, certain people in society should not, and legally can be disqualified from, being able to own a gun because they are unstable or they are dangerous. they are not the citizens that in fact the vast majority of gun owners x-ray. -- owners comprise. three, we should make commonsense judgments about keeping dangerous weapons off our streets. clearly within the purview of the government, at the same time recognizing, honoring, and being compliant wit

a hundred libraries in the country. as a nonprofit kind of cooperative effort, with the government and with institutions of governance, which libraries are, throughout the country. so there is a lot of cooperative effort that those take place. in the are a lot of digitals that come to mind. my favorite example is, comes from czarnecki see who wrote reading alito in tehran. she says when she speaks to her students she would say in tehran, you name an american president in the 19th century. and very few could, but one or two might sick wasn't lincoln in the 19th century? and then she says, can you name an american literary figure. all hands raise, and they say mark twain. and so who has the bigger impact in the world? is it a literary figure or is it a political figure? very interesting. we think politics as a society often, when really literature is the power driving figured. >> [inaudible] is advertising. i have always resisted putting advertising in the random house books. whether it be for real pharmaceutical, and yet when you take something like ian fleming novels, james bond, w
government and federal programs. because federal government is funding 40% of the health care in this country. so we have big savings in health care. we have big savings for the federal government. discretionary savings, the speaker proposed 300 billion over 10 years. again, if we put that in context are going to spend $11.6 trillion over the next 10 years. so that would represent a savings of 2.6%. as judd indicated we've already had and the budget control act 900 billion of savings, so there are substantial savings that have already occurred in this area. but we can do another 300 billion. we could save another 2.6%. other mandatory, that's the other major category. again, speaker proposed $200 billion over 10 years. we are going to spend $11 trillion -- i'm sorry, $511 trillion in this category over the next 10 years. so that represents a 10 a savings of 4%. you know, what have we become as a country if we can't make a 4% change? really, that is something we should be able to do. so under the compromise that i proposed, taking the speakers numbers, taking the president's revenue, you can s
the way the two economies govern themselves? >> we have dealt with the issues with safeguarding other countries. we did that in the negotiations with colombia. we did that in negotiations with panama. if any two entities can resolve those issues, it is the eu and the united states. essentially, what the eu has been doing, in my judgment, to use regulatory provisions. i don't like the word protect exactly because it's overused, but to essentially safeguard the market from our competition. so we should be able to do that than to structure should be able to meet those tests. that i think is very doable. the french have to be willing to let us enter into their market. and we have had the same problem with russia, and i think that we have basically taken the step to resolve it. do it with russia, we can do it with the eu. >> you talk about the republican party changing. when the democrats were the majority, they had blue dog democrats from south carolina and mississippi and louisiana and north carolina and virginia. they are gone. the democrats have changed. the democrats are far more unif

, expansive government." the chairwoman of the house republican conference said "the president's out word words must be matched with actions regarding the country's fiscal health," suggesting a gulf between the two." good morning, your thoughts on the inaugural address? caller: i thought that it was wonderful. i thought that the speech was very insightful. the keylieve that's words were we the people. together we will do all the things we set out to do. host: he talked about preserving medicare, social security. he talked about climate change, equal rights for gay couples and women. is that your priority list? caller: maybe not in that order, but the president has a hard job and congress has got to work together with him. i believe that we have good republicans. many people in the country believed in the position of the president and that the congress will go along, eventually. host: all right, douglas. your priority list? top five? top three? caller code jobs, education, and for the end of the war. -- caller: jobs, education, for the war to end. host: let's hear the president speaking on
are approaching a number of other fiscal critical watersheds coming up. we have the funding of the government, the so-called sequester, number of spending cuts that were laid as part of the fiscal cliff of arrangement. and we have the infamous debt ceiling that will come into play. we will see a lot of activity in the next few months, debates about the purpose of the government, about the size of the deficit, and a lot of back- and-forth over these three issues. i want to say one word about the debt ceiling. not many people understand what the debt ceiling is about. raising the debt ceiling, which congress has to do periodically, gives the government the ability to pay its existing bills. it doesn't create new deficits. it does not create new spending. so not raising the debt ceiling is sort of like a family, which is trying to improve its credit rating, shane, i know how we can improve our credit rating. we will pay your credit card bills. that is not the best way to improve your credit rating. all of these issues are important, but it is very important that congress take necessary action to
to discuss it they did reimburse the district of columbia government some $44 million for the last inauguration in 2009. that probably just scratches the surface of the cost the taxpayers are putting. if you look over the parade route the police presence is just unbelievable. there are probably police officers every 10 feet. i did some quick calculations, it is 1.6 miles from the capitol to the white house and with police interspersed that often on the parade route alone there are over 1700 police officers. that of course does not include the plainclothes guys filtering in and out of the crowd, the 40 or so police agencies including capitol police, secret service, national park police and police from surrounding jurisdictions who have come here to help out. we're told that the parade route now is closed off to all people because the parade route is filled up. however there are ticketed areas where there is still lots of room. i think a hunch maybe a third or half as many people are expected for inauguration as last one is probably right about right on. shep? shepard: thank you, sir
.s. debt ceiling or risk causing irreparable harm to the economy. he says the government will run out of tools to avoid a default by late february, early march. the u.s. credit rating is not a bargaining chip or hostage that can be taken to avoid any political agenda. president obama again rejected any negotiation with republicans over the debt ceiling. i love the debt clock. it's almost as fast as the amount of money they're going to earn tr nike. >> and is we'll talk about that. >> meanwhile, fed chairman ben bernanke speaking monday warned the u.s. economy isn't out of the woods yet and is still at risk from political gridlock. >> raising the debt ceiling, which congress has to do periodically, gives the government the ability to pay its existing bills. it doesn't create new deficits, it doesn't create new spending. so not raising the debt ceiling is sort of like a family trying to improve its credit rating saying, i know how we can save money, we won't pay our credit card bills. not the most effect of way to improve your credit rating. >> ben bernanke says the u.s. economy appears
. this is not something happening on the federal level, state and local governments are trying to come up with ways to tackle gun violence. there is a summit in the second day in the baltimore, maryland area where mayors and governors and other officials come across in needing to come up with solutions and you see states like maryland and new york taking some of these steps or considering taking the steps as well. strong push back from the nra saying they will fight any attempt to restrict their second amendment rights and raising doubts as to whether they can make their way through congress. >> thank you, dan. john berman has the other stories. >> you heard dan talking and in a few hours, new york may be one of the first state to enact tougher gun laws. the changes proposed by andrew cuomo puts new measures to place to keep guns away from the mentally ill. >> this is a surge on society. people had to live through these tragedies. tragedy after tragedy after tragedy and people are saying at what point do we get it? at what point do you say enough, we understand? no one else has to die. no more inno
of the government, about the size of the deficit, and a lot of back and forth over these three issues. i think i just want, without going into all the different ramifications, i want to say one word about the debt ceiling, which is that not everybody understand what the debt ceiling is about. the debt ceiling, raising the debt ceiling, which congress has to do periodically, gives the government the ability to pay existing bills. it doesn't create new deficits. it doesn't create new spending. so not raising the debt ceiling is sort of like a family, which is trying to improve its credit rating sank i know how we can save money, we won't pay off credit card bills. not the most effective way to improve your credit rating. it was the very slow solution to the debt ceiling in august 2011 i got the u.s. downgraded last time. so it's very, very important that all these issues are important but it's very, very important that congress take necessary action to raise the debt ceiling to avoid a situation where our government doesn't pay its bills. >> a number of people have expressed concern about how much
to have a practice at the commission that the government witnesses would be on the first panel and they object to that inappropriate cases but the reason i'm pointing it out -- i will mention one other thing. the past few times we've invited someone from the department of justice the federal law mandates all federal agencies shall cooperate fully with the commission. they won't send to testify at any time in the past couple of years. so it kind of the allies at least one false myth and that is that the military doesn't take this issue very seriously. so after trying to compliment you, i did want to -- i think to the vice admiral to get up to speed on some of the issues some of the biggest improvements for the kind of career tracking that i think you'll have the lead on in the media and those of us that are -- i was a very brief litigator but prosecutors and other litigators you learn to be a great lawyer by watching the great council, criminal defense working side by side, then having them available to counsel you and for the c-span viewers who may not know why if you could ela

in treasuries and other government guaranteed securities. now historically that's been a pretty safe group of money market funds. the group of money market funds where the issues have been are called prime funds because they invest in commercial paper of various sorts of companies. >> sure. >> and so i think that we shouldn't take a broad-brush approach. we should really focus on those commercial paper or prime money market funds opinions and what are you referring to is the regulatory review of money markets trying to address some concerns that were brought up when a big prime fund broke the buck. that net asset value which traditionally has been a dollar per share for money market funds went below testimony and the regulators have said do we want a floating fund? >> right. and the regulators have proposed a number of different potential requirements. they've been very controversial am but i think the most important one is the one that you just mentioned. that instead of having a constant dollar net asset value, it would fluctuation with the market every day. now it probably wouldn't fluc
